Anyone else finding System is using a lot of CPU since the last win10 cumulative update - April 13, 2021—KB5001330 (OS Builds 19041.928 and 19042.928)

I'm seeing it high 20 to low 30% CPU usage, I can't recall it ever being this high unless there was an update or something going on in the background.

I checked Windows Update and last check earlier today, but nothing installed or pending installation, I will keep monitoring and see if it stops.
David, Yes but it seems to have calmed down after 30mins or so. Think it was checking for Wndows Updates and causing a lot of fan noise. No new updates were found.

Mine seems to have gone back to normal, only seeing a spike when I open Task Manager and now it returns to very low levels typically 0.1% CPU.

I found another one (when checking System again) that I can't recall from my memory - System Guard Runtime Monitor Broker Service (SgrmBroker.exe) - apparently it has been around since win8 and continued in win10.  However it seems well behaved.

Mozilla fixes Windows 10 NTFS corruption bug in Firefox
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/software/mozilla-fixes-windows-10-ntfs-corruption-bug-in-firefox/
What does Firefox have to do with Windows 10?
It is about the means of delivering the payload that can trigger the corruption. It has to get on your system somehow to be able to be exploited.

Presumably there are other means of delivery, so until MS closes this hole, win10 users are still vulnerable.

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-fixes-windows-10-drive-corruption-bug-what-you-need-to-know/

Note: Unfortunately, this fix has only landed in the Windows 10 Insider 'Dev' channel and not the Windows 10 21H1 'Beta' preview, the next feature update to be released this spring. Unless Microsoft uplifts this fix to a Windows version being released sooner, we will likely be stuck with this bug for some time.

Downloaded and Install. Bit of a glitch after first Reboot as system couldn't log into Personal Profile and as a result didn't show/load my Desktop and Taskbar items. Second reboot was needed to resolve and now shows personal settings..
Very quick update. :)

I'm updating my 21H1 version with 'Cumulative Update Preview' KB5003214
The download has ceased 3 times, has shown download percentage at 100% 3 times and Installing percentage at 100% twice but then dropping to lower percentage and continuing.

The whole update process has been going on for 2.5 hours now,

Not streamlines at all. Very inconsistent!   :-\

I had one of the 4 computers that I updated that took 4 hrs. The other 3 took less than 1 hr. each.
